1982 - Flash #320 Unpublished Cover

Here's the published version by Ed Hannigan, kind of anti-climatic compared to the unpublished one.

Glenn (as he mentioned in the comments section) has pointed out this cover is an homage to a tradition of villains holding up a Flash costume. Here's an example...


  1. I was gonna say exactly what you did! The unpublished version is striking! looks like an Infantino design with that moon encircling the main figures.

  2. I think the published cover is a throwback to the Silver Age with various villains holding an empty Flash uniform aloft. Grodd springs immediately to mind. Flash fact - Flash cover tradition.

  3. Thanks Glenn, I've updated the post with an example of that tradition.
